We Call Them Republicans

Mitt Romney - I hate the other 53% tooOn Friday night’s Real Time with Bill Maher, they did a segment with image confessions. It was pretty funny. You can find the segment over on WhoSay. But I thought this one was good enough to share.

I think that’s pretty accurate. It isn’t that I think Romney hates everyone. I think just like Rob Portman and most other conservatives, he doesn’t give a shit about anyone but his intimate circle. Certainly it is true that Mitt Romney is the kind of guy who can’t imagine what it’s like to starve to death without actually seeing it happen.

This was also true of Ronald Reagan. If he heard about some kid dying of cancer, he’d write a check for fifty grand. But when it came to providing healthcare for poor children, he didn’t really see the problem. Or you can think of the Woody Harrelson character in Seven Psychopaths who weeps over his dog but has no trouble murdering people for the smallest of indiscretions.

When they are in a movie, we call them psychopaths. When they are running for office, we call them Republicans.
